APconnections Study Shows Administrators Prioritize Results over Bandwidth Reporting


Today we released the results of our month-long study into the needs of bandwidth monitoring technology users which sought to determine the priority users place on detailed reporting compared to the overall impact on network optimization. Based on the results of a NetEqualizerNews.com poll, 80-percent of study participants voted that a smoothly running network was more important than the information provided by detailed reporting.

Ultimately, the study confirms what we’ve believed for years. While some reporting is essential, complicated reporting tools tend to be overkill. When users simply want their networks to run smoothly and efficiently, detailed reporting isn’t always necessary and certainly isn’t the most cost-effective solution.

Detailed bandwidth monitoring technology is not only more expensive from the start, but an administrator is also likely to spend more time making adjustments and looking for optimal performance. The result is a continuous cycle of unnecessarily spent manpower and money.

We go into further detail on the subject in our recent blog post entitled “The True Price of Bandwidth Monitoring.” The full article can be found at https://netequalizernews.com/2009/07/16/the-true-price-of-bandwidth-monitoring/.

APconnections Marks a New Milestone: Six Years Operating a Virtual Company


Duty Calls

Duty Calls

Since 2003, APconnections has utilized innovative technology to stay in near constant contact with our customers, offering unmatched service and accessibility. Through the use of the latest mobile communications advances, we’ve worked to surpass the efficiency and effectiveness of the traditional workplace, benefiting both our customers and staff members alike.

Since we’ve always been dedicated to bringing the latest technological benefits to our customers, be it through our own products or in how we might better serve those who use them, building our company around the concept of a virtual workplace made perfect sense. In the end, it provides for greater accessibility and increased freedom at the same time. We can essentially work from anywhere.

In addition to the customer service benefits, the virtual nature of APconnections has been central to maintaining the competitive prices of our products. Removing the middlemen that have typically been necessary for holding organizations together significantly reduces operating costs, which equates to savings that are passed on to our customers. Furthermore, this also assures that our existing and future customers work only with staff possessing unparalleled expertise in APconnections’ technology. This is both a matter of trust and efficiency.  We find that it’s very comforting and appealing for customers to know that if and when they call or e-mail, they’ll be working directly with someone who understands our technology better than anyone else.

APconnections Announces 50-Percent-Off Sale of New NetEqualizer-Lite


Beginning May 26, all customers purchasing a full size NetEqualizer 2000/3000 model will qualify for a 50-percent discount on the NetEqualizer-Lite. In addition, the offer will be extended to all existing NetEqualizer users who will also be entitled to the 50-percent discount on their first NetEqualizer-Lite purchase. This offer is valid until June 30, 2009. Limit two per customer.

As well as offering users the same services available through previously released NetEqualizer models, the NetEqualizer-Lite is Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), handling up to 10 megabits of traffic and 200 users. Furthermore, the NetEqualizer-Lite also serves to solve hidden node issues without customers having to change their existing access points.*

Although the core technology behind the NetEqualizer has not changed, with the latest release price point, many ISPs and businesses are deploying the NetEqualizer-Lite closer to end users, often directly behind congested access points.

After just over a month in the field, NetEqualizer-Lite users are reporting they can now easily increase Internet subscribers by 30 to 50 percent at once congested towers and AP sites. For example, a customer with an 802.11b radio now has 100 subscribers on his network and is still running smoothly. In the past, this customer’s norm for saturation stood at roughly 20 users, but he is now enjoying a 500-percent increase after installing the NetEqualizer-Lite. This is translating into both higher revenues and a more satisfied customer base.

The NetEqualizer-Lite lists at $1499. In addition to the 50-percent discount, we are also currently offering volume discounts. Pricing information on all other NetEqualizer models is available online at http://www.netequalizer.com. For more information, please contact APconnections at 1-800-918-2763 or admin@apconnections.net.

*Hidden nodes are a problem frequently encountered by commercial wireless operators that has previously been solved using APconnections’ AirEqualizer technology. The NetEqualizer-Lite’s capability to offer similar solutions is simply one of the multiple benefits of the technology for administrators of networks of many different types and sizes.

NetEqualizer-Lite Revolutionizing WISP Performance


After just over a month in the field, NetEqualizer-Lite users are reporting they can now easily increase Internet subscribers by 30 to 50 percent at once congested towers and access point (AP) sites. For example, a customer with an 802.11 B radio now has 100 subscribers on his network and is still running smoothly. In the past, this customer’s norm for saturation stood at roughly 20 users, but he is now enjoying a 500-percent increase after installing the NetEqualizer-Lite. This is translating into both higher revenues and a more satisfied customer base.

Although the core technology behind the NetEqualizer has not changed, with the latest release price point, many users are deploying the NetEqualizer-Lite closer to customers or just behind their congested wireless access points. Customer satisfaction with the new release has been consistent across the board, with users voicing their reviews to us directly as well as online. One user on DSLReports.com commented:

“The Netequalizer has resulted in dramatically improved service to our customers….Bottom line to this is that we can deliver significantly more data through the same AP. The customers hitting web pages, checking e-mail, etc. virtually always see full bandwidth, and the hogs don’t impact these customers. Even the hogs see better performance” (dslreports.com).

In addition to offering users the same services available through previously released NetEqualizer models, the NetEqualizer-Lite is Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), handling up to 10 megabits of traffic and 200 users.

APconnections Releases NetEqualizer for Small Business and WISP Market


LAFAYETTE, Colo., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- APconnections (http://www.netequalizer.com),
a leading supplier of plug-and-play bandwidth shaping products,
today announced the release of its newest NetEqualizer model,
developed specifically with WISPs and small business users in mind.

This newest NetEqualizer release easily handles up to 10 megabits of traffic and up to 100 users, allowing room for expansion for growing demand. Furthermore, in addition to offering all standard NetEqualizer features, this smaller model will be Power over Ethernet, providing administrators greater flexibility in placing the unit within their network.

The model was developed to meet a growing demand both for an affordable traffic shaping device to help small businesses run VoIP concurrent with data traffic over their Internet link as well as a need for a shaping unit with PoE for the WISP market.

In a large wireless network, congestion often occurs at tower locations. However, with a low-cost PoE version of the NetEqualizer, wireless providers can now afford to have advanced bandwidth control at or near their access distribution points.

“About half of wireless network slowness comes from p2p (Bit Torrent) and video users overloading the access points,” said Joe D’Esopo, vice president of business development at APconnections. “We have had great success with our NE2000 series, but the price point of $2,500 was a bit too high to duplicate all over the network.”

For a small- or medium-sized office with a hosted VoIP PBX solution, the NetEqualizer is one of the few products on the market that can provide QoS for VoIP over an Internet link. And now, with volume pricing approaching $1,000, the NetEqualizer will help revolutionize the way offices use their Internet connection.

Pricing for the new model will be $1,200 for existing NetEqualizer users and $1,499 for non-customers purchasing their first unit. However, the price for subsequent units will be $1,200 for users and nonusers alike.

The NetEqualizer is a plug-and-play bandwidth control and WAN/Internet optimization appliance that is flexible and scalable. When the network is congested, NetEqualizer’s unique “behavior shaping” technology gives priority to latency sensitive applications, such as VoIP and email. It does it all dynamically and automatically, improving on other available bandwidth shaping technology. It controls network flow for the best WAN optimization.

APconnections is a privately held company founded in 2003 and is based in Lafayette, Colorado.
